In a phone call between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford days before the federal government invoked the Emergencies Act, Trudeau told Ford no additional legal powers were needed for police to clear the Ambassador Bridge blockade. True North’s Andrew Lawton discusses the revelation with lawyer Mark Joseph of The Democracy Fund.

Also, author and Canada Strong and Free Network president Jamil Jivani joins the show to discuss how refusing to go woke cost him his job with one of Canada’s largest media companies. Also, is mandatory masking coming back?

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
